Starts off in the woods, down a gully with a great fast feel, before very tight rocky straights and switchbacks in the open. Then the final straight is full of bus stops with a cheeky drop at the end. Beware of long grass obscuring later sections and not seeing the trail veer right of a tree or the large puddles before the bus stops. Part of an EWS 2014 stage.

Access Info

Turn right after Britney spears or go down from the mast along the mustard snake, (make way for climbers as its there climb) and take a left at the trees.
